This is sooo much better than regular store-bought stuff ! I really liked this pudding...DH isn't too fond of chocolate so didn't care much for this one, but I know my sister - who's visiting next week - will absolutely love this. I added some orange zest into my bowl and it reminded me of Lindt's lovely Dark Chocolate with Orange : ) ( Note: The recipe was shown on an episode of 'Cooking for Real'. Sunny sprinkled something on top before serving the pudding but I missed that so that isn't mentioned here, hopefully any Zaarite who has seen or sees that episode can mention it in the review.
